Belated Vocations in the UK

Recommended Posts



I don't doubt that at some point there has already been a thread on this topic but I was unable to find it.  I please let me know if you know of one.

I am 55 years old and am currently looking into living a contemplative consecrated life.  I know that most cloistered contemplative orders in the US aren't keen on starting out with a postulant at my advanced age.  From my research, I have only found a handful that would consider anyone over 40.  It appears that the UK is not so concerned with age and I am willing to travel to find wherever the Lord wants me to be.  I know in my heart that this is my path.

Does anyone know of any contemplative orders in the UK that accept belated vocations?  I am most interested in Poor Clares and Carmelites.

Thank you for your help and God Bless You!
